Some Guy Scooped The Baseball Media On The Biggest MLB Contract Ever

Details about the contract Giancarlo Stanton is signing with the Miami Marlins have started to leak out, and they're staggering: $325 million over 13 years, $50 million more than Alex Rodriguez's landmark 10-year, $275 million deal signed in 2007. The deal also includes a no-trade clause and opt-out clause, all… » 11/14/14 5:50pm 11/14/14 5:50pm

Giancarlo Stanton Is Rightfully Wary Of The Marlins' Stink

Giancarlo Stanton is having a tremendous year. He leads the NL in WAR, and he's carried a plucky young Miami Marlins team that is without ace José Fernández to a .500 record and within range of a Wild Card spot. On a normal team, a season like this would leave a player like Stanton feeling enthused about the… » 8/26/14 1:56pm 8/26/14 1:56pm

Adeiny Hechavarria Momentarily Saves Game With Great Diving Grab

The Rockies beat the Marlins 5-4 on a walk-off single in the 13th inning Saturday and the only reason it wasn't an inning earlier is because of this play. With two outs and men on the corners, Justin Morneau hit a flare out into no man's land between second base and left-center field. Adeiny Hechavarria turned his… » 8/24/14 11:35am 8/24/14 11:35am

Dan Jennings Hit In Head By Screaming Line Drive

This is legitimately terrifying. Pirates shortstop Jordy Mercer hit a line drive right back at Marlins pitcher Dan Jennings and hit him square in the head. He immediately went down to the ground and then scrambled around on the mound before getting up, freezing, staring blankly into space, and then staggering around… » 8/07/14 9:59pm 8/07/14 9:59pm

Blocking-The-Plate Rule Screws Marlins; Mike Redmond Starts Undressing

The Marlins got boned in a major way by the new and confusing rule that prohibits catchers blocking the plate. Although Zack Cozart was initially ruled out by home plate umpire Mike Winters, a lengthy umpire review eventually overturned the call and ruled him safe. Instead of a 1-0 Marlins lead heading into the… » 7/31/14 10:30pm 7/31/14 10:30pm

Young Marlins Fan Gets On Camera, Completely Loses His Mind

At a recent Marlins game, the camera panned through the stands and lingered on one small fan, putting him on the jumbotron. Fans often notice when this happens, and they get excited and wave at the camera and everyone has a nice time. This kid, though, took things to another level, creating the greatest moment in… » 6/25/14 8:23am 6/25/14 8:23am

José Fernández Is Hurt, And We Aren't Allowed To Love Anymore

José Fernández is 21 years old and unquestionably one of the most exciting players in baseball. I use "player" in place of "pitcher" with purpose, because it's not just Fernández's ability to mow down hitters that makes him so much fun to watch; it's the fact that he milks every ounce of fun he possibly can out of… » 5/13/14 1:02pm 5/13/14 1:02pm
